This is a whole-body activity that explores the relative sizes, distances, orbit, and spin of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. Learners/students will be able to compare the relative sizes of the Earth, Moon, and Sun; contrast the distance between the Earth and Moon to the distance between the Earth and Sun; differentiate between the motions of orbit and spin; and demonstrate the spins of the Earth and the Moon, as well as the orbits of the Earth around the Sun, and the Moon around the Earth. Topics include: rotation, orbits, Sun, Earth, Moon, and comparing and contrasting.
